    We donated as much as we could to the Food Drive. 🙂

    My question is, after our last meeting with the City regarding the funds ($12,500,000.00) moved to the City Cycle Track,, what does the City donate directly in regards to funding?

      Thank you so much for your donation! City Wide Food Drive was a great success this year!

      In regards to funding, the Calgary Food Bank doesn’t get government funding at all, we’re 100% supported by the community.

    Thank you, I cannot understand why we are not putting families in need first over seasonal projects. 🙁

    Even just the money spent on the unused cyle lanes in front of the Food Bank on 11th St SE could have made a difference to many familes.
